Knee pain is a common issue for people in our Arlington, WA chiropractic practice, and Dr. Ernst has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some individuals encounter pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has shown that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case reported that combining chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
